The Lord Came Knocking!

Just ask my boys. It is true. Last night at 8:45pm (I know my boys should have been sleeping - they were tyring), we opened up our front door and this is what we saw!

I felt a little bit like Granny Han last night. For those of you that do not know Granny here...and meet her! My boys were blown away. "God came here....I don't see Him?" "Wow, God bought me bubble bath!" In my last post I said that I have been standing on the Word of God to see us through this hard time. Well, God showed up last night and did exactly what He says He will do in Philippians 4:19 "And my God shall meet all your needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus." My boys have prayed these prayers right along with me and now they know, and if you ask them they will tell you, "God gave these bags of groceries to us!" Not just groceries either, Spider Man Bubble Bath, Laundry Detergent, and you can see the rest. We don't know the person who did this. All we know is that this family did not have enough this week to make ends meet, but we trusted and obeyed, and God is always faithful!

Granny (Pauline) Han, was ambassador for Christ in Taiwan and she totally depended on the Lord for her every need. He came through every single time and not only for her needs, but for some of her indulgences (chocolate and coffee) as well. Spider Man Bubble Bath and Jif Peanut Butter - come on....that is just so special - indulgences (bubble bath is not a need and we would have been happy with Winn-Dixie peanut butter, but Jif is our favorite!). Shane came to me this morning and asked if he could take a bath with the Bubble Bath that Jesus gave to us! The Lord also filled our gas tanks so we could last until my paycheck which is next Tuesday! Thank you Lord for hearing our prayers and seeing that all of our needs are met!

Husband starts a new job next week. We are very excited for him. He will be surrounded by other believers and his work environment will be an encouragement to his soul. We pray for the Lord's favor upon him and thank the Lord for yet another opportunity for Mike to gain more knowledge and to touch people's lives.
